      We haven't heard from you in a little while!

      Tell us what is going on. It seems like this winter is going to be a lot different for you than last winter!

      Very nice truck!

        Where I have been :P

        Hey guys,
        I know its been awhile I have been away working my *** off lawn cutting and cleanups and such. I still have my 48" yazoo kees walkbehind hydro, but now I also have a 61" zeroturn yazoo kees that I bought used with 178 hrs. I bought a new 8x16 enclosed pace summit trailer "black" to match the truck.

        Hopefully I can make enought to pay the plow off since the trailer is paid for this season.

        I have about 35 clients now and still growing. Keep in mind that I am still working at the rental store here at 9 mile Rent All.

          That is great!

          Have you figured out how many customers you will need to hit in order to go fulltime with it?

            I would say 60 to 80 clients and I would be good to go full blown lawn services. Actuall weekly cuts no bi-weekly or tri-weekly bs.

              What have you been planning in order to hit those goals? Are you thinking of doing anything differently than you had last year?

                Only thing differnt that I plan on doing is advertisement word of mouth built my business to this point where I am at now, but lets face it not every client brings in more business wish it was that easy. Going to try to hit more larger lawn areas further north.

                  How will you be handling the plowing this season? Are you doing it all on your own or are you going to perform sub-contract work for others?

                  How big of a deal was this for you to get a plow and to offer snow plowing, within the bigger plan?

                    I have some of my own work for snow that I had for years now, mostly residentials I picked up a few stores, pizza places, lots and such. But I am subbing my self out this year for another guy. I have a meeting with him next week to see the route and what he has me to do, so far I have 5 to 6 hours of work offerd from him I am not sure on pay but I am guessing 65 to 85 an hour.

                    Last year I helped out a freind and I could have used a plow then, but instead I was in a front loader freezing my *** off, but not no more.


                    My goal for the winter season is to make enough to pay the plow off and bank in some extra cash for spring.

                      Sweet!

                      What's the deal with the split plow? Can you angle it both ways?

                        The plow can be used in many ways, the way it is on the photo, moved to a straight blade, or V back out to make a cup to scoop and stack snow :P

                          You got me thinking. What kind of advantage do you get from the v-plow? Does it help more with commercial jobs or residential?

                            Advantages in both places I would suppose, it would be hard for someone to plow a storage unit place without a vplow. I can stack snow higher and cleanup faster then a straight plow .. each time you plow your limited left or right so your straight blade cant really get the straggling lines left behind without multiple swipes. I can V the plow and scoop the peices making cleaning faster.. now being a 8.2 inch width plow may cause some problems with narrow driveways but they are screwed cause I won't touch them. Or use a snowblower depending on how long the driveway is.

                              What made you ultimately choose that one? Did you have friends that had them who spoke highly of them or did you just want to experiment yourself and see what it would be able to do for you?
